Porter's First Chapter Book

Jason has been reading chapter books to the kids for a while now but, Porter has never read one on his own. His school was having a book fair, he picked out this book and read it. It was so cute to see him sitting there reading it and laughing out loud.

A game

During my time with Porter we made up this game at the Artist's Village where we pick a color and have to only step on that color. The kids love it and it is a fun challenge for me too!

Palm Springs

Last weekend my parents and a friend watched the kids so Jason and I could take a quick trip out to Palm Springs. We love it out there and had a really nice time. I think my favorite part of the trip was ridding a tandem bike to breakfast in the village.

Zhu Zhu Babies

Recently the kids and some of their friends got to play with the new Zhu Zhu Babies. Liesl watched the commercial for them and asked for one for her birthday but, they were not out in the stores yet. When Liesl finaly got her Zhu Zhu Baby she said "I have been wishing for this my whole entire life" The kids had a really fun time playing with them.

Mother's Day

"your children are not your children,
they are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.
they come through you but are not from you,
and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
you may give them your love but not your thoughts,
for they have their own thoughts.
you may house their bodies but not their souls,
for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
you may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
for life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday."
